Re: African Ancestry PatriClan Test Results

Hi Cuz,

It is so wonderful to know where the roots of our great great grand parents are from!!

My sequence was 99.3% the same as sequences from Bubi people in Bioko Island and Mbundu (a.k.a. Kimbundu) people of Angola.

My initial research of the Bubi people on Bioko Island discover that in the 19th century, Britain used the island as a base for the Navy’s anti-slavery patrols. Many enslaved Africans rescued from slaving ships were resettled on the Bioko Island.(Source: A genetic journey by Beaula McCalla;Finding Me, an account of a genetic journey to Afrika)

BTW: Mel, thanks again for the African Heritages section graphics!!! I sourced you also for the Angola section on the Hopkins Family Web site.
